[applause] i took out a bill draft request form to write a bill to strike all of that language out of there. i would get that drafted and get it filed. i thought, if i just strike the language out that calls for the global, non-sexist multiculturalism. but i thought people would think i did not believe in everything. i wrote a bill to replace it. strike up the language about global non-sexi

cutting short his tour of latin america amid criticism of his leadership on libya and now heading back to washington two hours earlier than planned and holding a conference call with his national security team before departing. speaking in el salvador yesterday, obama pushed back against criticism of the high cost of war which some analystings predict could cost the western coalition more than $1 billion if the operation drags on for more than a couple of months. >> we will continue to provide details to the american people about the costs of this operation. but because it is limited in time, scope, with a well-defined mission, we are confident that this is something we can budget as part of our overall operations. events happen around the world in which the united states with our unique capabilities has to respond. as the leader in the world community. in benghazi, city of 700,000 people, you had the prospect of gadhafi's forces carrying out his orders to show no mercy. for us to be able to structure something where we bring our unique capabilities to bear, to fulfill a mission that i
